OBJECTIVES

The UK Flood Partnership was conceived to support the growth of a high quality, UK wide flood defence industry. It provides a unique forum for engagement, representing the first ever attempt to bring together like minded organisations to help tackle one of the biggest natural threats we face.

By bringing together key public and private sector stakeholders, the Partnership aims to ensure best practice is disseminated and a standards framework adopted.

Through the introduction of an Innovation Exchange, it also aims to provide a platform for the sharing of ideas from both within and outside the industry and provide a gateway to international opportunities.
